Turkey runs point for Washington. It's NATO's regional attack dog. It belligerently flew warplanes low and fast into Syrian territory. It suggests other provocations will follow. Erdogan's spoiling for a fight. America, Israel, Britain and France urge one.

"The rules of engagement have changed," he said. Hours after his comments, Turkish forces headed for Syria's border areas from Diyarbakir to Mardin. They included tanks and long-range artillery.

He also accused Russia of being "Syria's mouthpiece." Calling what happened "extremely dangerous," its foreign ministry warned against using this incident as a pretext for further intervention.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Washington "will work with Turkey and other partners to hold the Assad regime accountable."

Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain John Kirby said:

"We don't have the tick-tock of the decision-making process that led to this aircraft being shot down. The fact is that it was shot down. We believe it was a deliberate act."

Another Pentagon spokesman, George Little, added that "the the Syrian regime needs to answer for it."

Washington, Turkey, key NATO partners, and regional allies keep advancing the ball closer to war. Expect a future false flag attack used to launch it. The likelihood looks more certain daily.

NATO's Tuesday meeting gave ominous signs. Secretary-General Fogh Rasmussen made hostile comments. He condemned Syria for Turkey's provocation.

He called it " the strongest terms." He accused Assad of violating "international norms, peace and security, and human life."

Syria is under attack. According to international law, it's entitled to respond defensively. Failure would be irresponsible. Rasmussen is titular head of a global killing machine.

NATO's record shows total disregard for international law. Since the 1990s, it committed naked aggression against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Member states support Washington's proxy wars.

According to Rasmussen, "the security of the Alliance is indivisible. We stand together with Turkey in the spirit of solidarity." Discussions in Brussels stopped short of invoking Article 5. Doing so suggests imminent war.

Given what's ongoing, one or more false flags could launch it. They could come any time. Scoundrel media misinformation increases the possibility. 

Propaganda reports feature big lies. Repetition enlists public support. It works every time. No matter how often people are fooled, they're easy marks for more.

Syrian expert Patrick Seale sees ominous "War Clouds over the Greater Middle East."
